Profile  

I completed my Ph.D. in clinical child and adolescent psychology at the Université de Montréal, Canada. I am now conducting a postdoctoral project with Dr. Murayama, which allows me to pursue my passion about parenting and teaching practices and their effects on children under the Self-Determination Theory framework. My current project examines the effects of parent and teacher empathy on children’s school and socioemotional adaptation through longitudinal database analyses and a teacher intervention.
